SkinPen Microneedling In NYC

SkinPen NYC
SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is the first microneedling device in the world cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), clinically shown to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up. With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.

How SkinPen Microneedling Works

SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result: effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.

What Are the Advantages of SkinPen Microneedling?

SkinPen is clinically shown to reduce the appearance of acne scars. In fact, 90% of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the treatment to friends and family. It’s a minimally invasive procedure performed in-office with little downtime. As the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, SkinPen sets the industry standard for safety.

Am I a Candidate for SkinPen Microneedling in NYC?

SkinPen NYC
Unlike most alternatives, SkinPen microneedling has been clinically shown to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from light to very dark. Likewise, SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh chemical peels. In addition, when you properly space treatments that are overseen by a physician, the procedures can be administered year-round.

Is SkinPen Safe?

Yes, by design. SkinPen’s patent-pending – and single-use – sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. SkinPen is also surrounded by
a proprietary BioSheath that acts as a barrier
to prevent cross-contamination between procedures.2 Safety measures like these are part of the reason SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the FDA.

What To Expect Post-Treatment

The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Additionally, the most common side effects felt in the treatment area include:

  • Dryness
  • Rough skin
  • Tightness
  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Peeling
  • Tenderness
  • Burning

These conditions resolved over time without any further complications.
